Steve Carell ‘obsessed with infomercials’

Steve Carell

Steve Carell has reportedly been annoying his wife by snapping up items he sees for sale on TV.

The American funny man apparently loves watching the latest adverts, which often feature unusual products to be used around the home. While most people don't bother tuning in, Steve has apparently been staying up late to get his TV fix and often indulges in the items on offer - much to his spouse Nancy’s annoyance.

"She's told him that she'll hide his credit cards," an insider laughed to National Enquirer. "But he loves testing the products to see if they actually work."

The 50-year-old actor and his wife are the proud parents of 11-year-old Annie and Johnny, eight. Neither of the youngsters can fathom why their father is filling up their home with so many useless inventions.

"They are embarrassed," the source added.

One of the star's most recent purchases is said to be foot scraper the Ped Egg. The file is like a cheese grater for rough skin, with the egg-shaped casing catching the dead skin as it is removed.

It's not just Steve who is a fan of the product. It became the fastest selling gadget of all time when it launched in the UK, shifting 3.9 million units in under two years.
